And here is the oatmeal master with his grandson:
2 cups milk (any kind works, I've had both whole and almond milk, both were great)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup oatmeal (quick or old-fashioned)
1 tablespoon coconut (I'm a coconut lover and put a bunch more in)
1 chopped apple
1/4 cup raisins
Whip egg, mix in milk and brown sugar in pan. Add oatmeal and on low heat, stirring constantly, cook slowly. When oatmeal just starts to bubble add coconut, apples and raisins.
Variation: I mixed the egg, milk and brown sugar and then added the oatmeal, coconut and fruit. I divided up the recipe into a smaller amount and put it in the microwave for a minute, stirred it, put it back in for a minute, stirred it and then back in for 30 seconds. It was done to perfection...
This serves 3.
